A day of road maintenance will close upper Alpine Road to all but local traffic today (April 23) as workers repair damage to the road shoulder from a winter storm in December.
The closure began at 9 a.m. this morning and is set to end around 4 p.m. "Road Closed" signs are located at both ends of the 100-foot work area where the Razorback Ridge trail intersects with Alpine Road, the 5500 block, according to a staff report.
Warning signs will be up at intersections with Willowbrook Drive to the east of the site and with Joaquin Road to the west. Residents and emergency vehicles will be allowed through.
The repair work, set to begin in May and be complete by the end of June, is being done by Half Moon Bay Grading and Paving, the low bidder at $328,532, the report says.
The town has applied for disaster relief funding and has been approved to recover at least some of it from state or federal source, Town Manager Nick Pegueros said.
